Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS), also known as Wraparound, is a service that focuses on the behavioral health needs of a child in his/her everyday environment. The treatment goals of BHRS are client-centered yet family-focused, identifying the needs of the child in the home, school and community and developing a program which "wraps around" the child. When families are involved with BHRS they will have weekly scheduled sessions with clinical team members in all settings relevant to their child.
BHRS is funded through Pennsylvania State Medical Assistance (PAMA), regardless of family income. Children from birth to 21 years of age can be evaluated for eligibility. BHRS is not exclusive, and can often be prescribed in conjunction with other behavioral health and intellectual disability services.
Clinicians involved in BHRS meet all educational, training and supervision requirements as outlined by Pennsylvania Department of Welfare (DPW) and Community Behavioral Health (CBH). They also maintain current Child Abuse and Criminal Record Check clearances while working with PMHC. When you start BHRS at PMHC, you will be assigned a Service Specialist who will be your primary in-house contact. Your child's clinical treatment will be overseen by your psychologist, while your child's clinical team will be led by a Master's Level Clinician, either a Behavioral Specialist Consultant (BSC) or a Mobile Therapist (MT). You may also be assigned a therapeutic support staff (TSS) clinician to provide support in the school community or in your home.
To request our evaluation services, you can contact us by phone or click HERE to use our on-line "intake" form. Office visits will be required to assess both the initial and ongoing needs of the child. These office visits average four times per year. When involved with BHRS through PMHC, families also have the support of the BHRS Department and Quality Assurance Department to manage their case, address concerns and provide linkage to other clinical and community resources. PMHC also offers psychiatric consultation and medication management for some children involved with BHRS at our Pine Street location in Center City, Philadelphia.
